West Ham United will clash heads with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium earlier this evening as they hoped to pick up a positive result on the road. The Hammers made a quick start to the game and took the lead in the tenth minute courtesy of a decent finish from Jarrod Bowen. However, the Foxes equalised just before the stroke of half-time as Youri Tielemans scored from the penalty spot. Both teams went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.

Leicester completed the turnaround in the 57th minute when Ricardo Perreira scored with an excellent finish. However, Craig Dawson netted in injury-time and salvaged a point for West Ham as the match finished 2-2 with both teams sharing the spoils.

Let’s take a look at how each West Ham player performed during the clash against the Foxes.

GK: Łukasz Fabiański – 6/10

The Polish keeper didn’t have a save to make in the game but will be disappointed after conceding two goals this evening.

RB: Vladimír Coufal – 6/10

He got stuck in with a few tackles and was a strong presence in the air.

CB: Craig Dawson – 7/10

Dawson made two important clearances at the back and ended up netting a great injury-time goal which salvaged a point for his team.

CB: Issa Diop – 7/10

The French defender cleared the danger when needed and deserves credit for bagging an assist today.

LB: Aaron Cresswell – 5.5/10

He was defensively vulnerable and gave a cheap penalty just before the half-time break.

CM: Tomas Soucek – 6/10

Soucek did his fair share of defensive work but offered very little in the final third.

CM: Declan Rice – 6/10

He struggled to get into the rhythm of the game and ended the game with an yellow card to his name.

RW: Jarrod Bowen – 8/10

Bowen created a lot of problems for the opposition defenders. He has got a goal and an assist to show for his efforts.

CAM: Manuel Lanzini – 6/10

He failed to trouble the Leicester defenders and got replaced in the 78th minute.

LW: Pablo Fornals – 6.5/10

The Spaniard created two good chances for others around him but didn’t get any real chance to find the back of the net.

ST: Michail Antonio – 6.5/10

Antonio made two clever runs with the ball but didn’t even have a strike at goal.

Substitutes:

RB: Ryan Fredericks – 6/10

He struggled to get himself involved in the game.

CAM: Nikola Vlasic – 6/10

Vlasic had a quiet game after coming off the bench.

LW: Said Benrahma – 6.5/10

He had a few strikes at goal but didn’t manage to get his name on the scoresheet.
